This Dynam Bf-110 was at the Gilman Springs Scale Masters Qualifier. It had been re-painted into the correct colors and looked and flew really nicely.

Video of Bri6672's Hangar 9 Corsair with a Saito FG-84 3 cylinder radial. This thing sounds angry with that engine in there! Hangar 9 has really done a nice job on this ARF, it looks really nice as a whole and the shape is well done.

I got my start in RC modeling as a kid building plastic models in the back of my dad's hobby shop. Many of the finishing techniques I use on my scale projects I developed from building plastics. A while back I found these Polar Lights BTTF DeLorean kits and so picked a couple up to build with my kids. It was a good time!

This is first in my coverage from the Gilman Springs RC Flyers US Scale Master's Qualifier. This is a Ziroli Hellcat built and flown by Randy Warkentin. The airplane was beautifully built and flown perfectly. You gotta love the Grumman Cats!

Who remembers these days?? This is an old school ducted fan video of a Frankel designed F4D Skyray. I grew up watching and flying glow ducted fans with my dad in the days before ARFs. If you wanted it, you had to build it!

I was pretty excited to see an AD Super Scorpion show up at our field a while back. I'm not a huge sport jet guy (love scale), but if I could own any sport jet, this would be it! I love the look of it.

This beastly F-18F Super Hornet was sporting a Kingtech 210 turbine in it and had pretty insane power! Unfortunately, the fuel system seemed to be drawing mostly from the forward tanks leaving most of the remaining fuel in the aft tank. As a result, the airplane was tail heavy on the approach which caused abrupt pitch up when elevator was applied. This is very much an F-18 feature when tail heavy.

Fan: JetFan120
Motor: Neu 1917/1y
ESC: Edge 160HV Light
Battery: 12s 6200 mah
